Job Description

The Arkansas Times is looking for an experienced journalist to help plan, schedule and edit web content. Maybe you’ll write some news briefs, too. 

This is largely a project management role with editing duties. We are looking for someone to:

  • Help manage the editorial calendar for to make sure a mix of content is planned and scheduled.‚Äč
  • Edit daily blog pieces.
  • Post content across multiple social media platforms.

This position will report to the managing editor.

This person will work with the editorial director and editor-in-chief to flesh out the editorial agenda and make sure everything gets where it needs to go.

The ideal candidate would be comfortable working with almost any topic: breaking news, wonky policy deep-dives, music briefs, restaurant reviews, sassy editorials, off-kilter features, profiles of notable Arkansans and much more. They would be fluent and engaged in subjects ranging from news and politics to arts and culture. They would be able to edit 50-word spot news and 1,500-word features. 

They will be able to turn around a breaking news story in a matter of minutes and be willing to make the call to hold a more in-depth story if it needs further reporting.

The ideal candidate will be able to work with an eclectic crew of writers with a variety of talents, interests and levels of experience. Not everyone in our office is a J-school grad. The daily news editor will be able to both fill in the gaps that writers may have and also coach writers on improving.
We work hard, but we also strive for a work environment that’s friendly, fun and humane. Respect for everyone in the office is key.


Job Requirements

Enthusiasm is the most important requirement. Speed and insatiable curiosity are also helpful here. This person should have some editing experience already.
